the challenge: have you got your 100 list handy? yes? fantastic! no? well, this is your chance to get one going! this month, we will consult our 100 lists. it's quite simple, really. on the 7th of the month post an spt about item #7 on your list. on the 14th of the month, post an spt about item #14. and so on. and so on.

28. i cannot stand chicken-in-a-biscuit crackers and fanta red cream soda together. the thought makes me want to vomit. i ate them everyday for lunch when i was in eighth grade. we were morons.

i'm not really sure how it came to be that these two items became our lunch menu, but for awhile during eighth grade that is what we ate. some days i would bring the crackers, other days my friends would bring the crackers. and we would get the soda out of the machine. and then we would sit on the front steps of the school. like we were cool, or something.

seriously, we were morons. there is no other word to describe that. luckily, by ninth grade, i realized the value of a balanced meal and ate in the cafeteria...even though that wasn't the coolest place to be. i didn't care.

and now, for the self portrait...i do believe that this was from sixth or seventh grade, but close enough to eighth. but you can still tell i was a moron...i mean, the matching shirt and shorts is a dead giveaway. (i'm on the right--those are my cousins on the left and in the middle.)
